Back in December 2023, Jess Hilarious appeared to announce her permanent position as co-host on “The Breakfast Club” during an event. Since then, peers and fans alike began to speculate what was taking place after all parties effectively went radio silent.
Today (Jan. 29), Hilarious and Power 105.1, where “The Breakfast Club” is broadcasted, officially shut down any rumors with an official confirmation of her upcoming return to the show. In a teaser clip shared on social media, audio from others’ commentary is played in the background as the camera moves toward a white throne. The Baltimore talent gradually fades into view as Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy appear from behind her. The video ends with a date, Feb. 5, which is presumed to be her first day back in the studio.
The announcement comes after TMZ quizzed Charlamagne about what was going on earlier this month. “I would really like to know. I just came from downstairs. It was just me and Envy doing the show again,” he told the reporter at the time. Last Thursday (Jan. 25), NFL star-turned-podcaster Cam Newton tried to get answers on the situation to no avail.
Hilarious was one of several rotating guest hosts that appeared on “The Breakfast Club” following Angela Yee’s highly publicized exit in 2022. In one of the more notable moments during her temporary stint, the Rel actress found herself in a spicy back-and-forth with Sexyy Redd during an interview.
“I don’t mess with you,” Sexyy said to Hilarious. “You be sneak dissing. I see everything. I was trying to see y’all wasn’t sneak dissing before I came up here too. I check everything… I don’t like being brought up, especially when people talking s**t and all that.” Things eventually turned positive, as Jess managed to win the St. Louis rapper over by the end of her visit.
